Weekend Wreath

Happy Wednesday! First off, I need to announce the winner from our Believe Blog Hop. The mystery gift certificate was hidden on Jackie's post and our random winner is Tracy of Tracy's Happy Place! Congrats Tracy! Shoot an email to contests@vervestamps.com to claim your prize.

Okay, next up is a little card I made with one of Beate's weekend sketches from a few weeks back {WSC102}. I adore making long cards, so I've been holding onto this sketch until I had time to play! I pulled out the O Christmas Tree set because I wanted to do a little coloring and decided on this wreath. I stamped on pearlized white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black and then colored with Copics and added a little sponging with So Saffron once I cut the circle out. The rectangle panel is some SU! dsp and I stamped the small Merry Christmas sentiment in the corner. Next up, I embossed the So Saffron layer with the Snowflakes Cuttlebug folder, then added Real Red mats, some red and white striped May Arts Ribbon, some rhinestone bling and a Kraft card base. I just love the happy red and yellow combo for a Christmas card. It makes me smile.

What's In It?
Stamps: O Christmas Tree (Verve)
Paper: Real Red, So Saffron, Kraft, The Write Stuff DSP (SU!) Pearlized White (Paper Accents)
Ink: So Saffron (SU!), Onyx Black (Versafine), Copic Markers
Accessories: Classic Circles (Nestabilities), Snowflakes (Cuttlebug), ribbon (May Arts), bling (Kaiser Craft)
